I have dual 7800GTXs, and needless to say, they SCREAM. They are so incredibly powerful. One single 7800GTX is more powerful then 2 6800Ultras. The BFG version is nice, but I would go with the gigabyte version, which is what I have. Also, you might want to get some better RAM, aka, OCZ Plat or Crucial Ballistix or Mushkin RedLine or OCZ VX (preferrably the last two if your motherboard can support it)

something near the 7800GTX are good. For memory, get at least 2.5-4GB of RAM...

Thx! It performs well even at this high OCing level. A few stability issues, but those will pass with time. Till then, I can live with it. As far as the 7800GTXs go, they SCREAM. I have never seen graphics look so good, and they run relativily cool as well (59C full load!!!)

Now let's see some 3dMarks. I'm curious to see how high the score will be.

Don't take over the thread just talk over PM's.

BFG is a very good company.

When you're running dual 7800GTX, how are the temperature measured? The average of two temp from each card or just the temp sensor on one card?

The temps are displayed individually through the nvidia driver menu under Temperatures. You can pull down a drop down menu and select the card you want to see the temps on at a certain point. Pretty cut and dry.

TO IRISH SOLDIER:

If you have the money, get the 7800GTX and also some better RAM. That RAM will hold back the performance of a card like the 7800! Better RAM is probably priority right now for you if you want an insane PC.

TO TRDCorolla:
I will post my scores for 3Dmark03 and 05' in that thread when I am confindent my system is going to run them at FULL VELOCITY and get the highest score possible. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Potter said that he may be running 40,000 + in another thread with his 7800GTX.

I seriously doubt that in 05'. In 03', yeah, I could see that. I will tell you my scores when I am confident they will beat Potters measly PC!

There's that famous quote. You two look like you guys have very similar systems. I think exactly the same.

But anyways, the BFG one looks pretty good because as it says on the descriptio, full throttle right out of the box. It looks faster than all the other 7800GTX cards available.

My gutsy tweaking is what will bring him down. He will not be able to tweak like me, I guarantee that! I am the TWEAK MASTER!! Nah, I am good at it, but there are people out there better then myself.

I wasn't! Look above, you will see that I told him to get it if he has the money, but to get new RAM as well, because his system will be unbalanced!

Then 2 posts about how good your system is, and TRDCorolla hasn't said anything to IrishSoldier327.

now, now, we don't want to get too picky. I'm just waiting for the moderator to see if this is appropriate. There are many threads in the history of CF that throw in conversational posts that contribute or get side tracked. But in the end, the title of the post says it all and if someone want to contribute, they will do so regardless what we say.

It seems ok to me. A discussion on the merits of overclocking the card, the same as many other posts. Dishdog and TRDCorolla just agree to disagree.

I actually liked it the way it was. But should the topic go way off, we'll try to get back on track. Sometime, I get a little comfortable here so topic wander off from time to time. Eventually, it'll be another thread that gets thrown in the "vault" (considered old thread and gets pushed back to page 100, lol). I'm sure there will be a lot more threads to come regarding the 7800GTX.
